Pain-Free Circumcisions — Tampa Bay Area
Studies have shown that infants react more severely to future pain when the pain of circumcision is not controlled. Please do not let anyone do this procedure on your newborn son without excellent pain control! Unfortunately, this is not the standard that is employed today. Babies can feel pain and will remember it.
The best control of pain—and the method I use—can be achieved by a nerve block and topical anesthesia. Many doctors do not have the expertise or don't want to spend the extra time it takes to do a proper block. Many of the babies that I circumcise sleep through the entire procedure without feeling pain.
If you have decided to have your newborn son circumcised, you can choose to have this experience be as pain free as possible! Please contact my office at (727) 807-7800 to schedule a time to discuss your questions and concerns about your baby's circumcision.
